Today I got an email informing me of payment by Pixoto to my Paypal. What a good news to start my day!

Photography is just my hobby and I'm not really here for the money. Getting paid for the work I really love is just a bonus. The feeling of satisfaction that my work is being appreciated to is more than enough for me.

When I joined last January, I was amazed by the images I see in this site (and have wished I could at least compete if not win someday). Slowly I'm getting some ideas from other's work, and from there I was trying to improve my work one step at a time.

Lately, I was paid by a friend a 150 bucks for an hour of wedding shots after they saw my Pixoto profile. When I checked my Pixoto earnings, some of my images were being subscribed to. And one of my images is now in the "pinnacle club". The feeling is really great!

In the meantime, I'm planning to join a local photo contest for a $500 top price and print & matt some of my images to sell to my family and friends (how I wish Pixoto will soon ship print and canvass out of the US).

Remember, we are here to relieve stress and not get stressed, so enjoy every bit of it! That's how photography is!
